Letters to the Editor

Hopes to see Hispanic presence in Enumclaw parade | Letter

In response to the (July 24) letter to the editor pertaining to the Fourth of July parade: I am with you all the way about having Hispanics in the parade.

The person who said “they should not be there, it’s our independence”: where is this person’s heritage? The Hispanic people have just as much right to be in our Independence Day parade. This town was settled and built by Swedish, Scandinavians and more from other countries. Go help someone in need, do something nice for someone, no matter where they are from; every day do a random act of kindness.

So, yes to the Hispanics with their beautiful horses and their homeland apparel which is radiant. Bring back the Hispanics and their culture.
